Your bloodline doesn’t mean every person on your family tree unconditionally and endlessly will love you, support you, believe in you, trust you, spend time with you, or care about you. Most of the time it will be someone who is not your blood relative who will be the kind of friend who sticks closer than a mother, a father, a brother, a sister, a cousin, and so forth. In other words, your true FAMILY will consist of the people who make every effort to love you, encourage you, listen to you, help you, and always be there for you—through thick and thin. That is why “blood” only means you are related, as well as why “blood” won’t always mean you are FAMILY!
For everyone who is in Christ Jesus, there is no racism and no envy or jealousy. Japanese haiku verses often express the unity spiritual element, as well as symptoms of the human condition.
Besides the Word of God and the leadings, promptings, and teachings of the Holy Spirit on the issue of demonstrating godly love to everybody, there also is one particular Contemporary Christian Rock song that forced me to re-examine my failure in showing the God kind of love to everyone, and this song also moved me to make an immediate radical change. This song is Casting Crowns’ “If We Are The Body.”
